    Hello! I've been searching for hours on where to buy a flash card, but all the sites I've come across feel fishy or have no encryption during checkout... What are the recommended sites for purchasing flash cards for the ds/3ds?

    The first one is far better as it officially supports Wood R4, but if you want extra features such as GBA/SNES emulation, free cheat and in-game guide and maximum compatibility you should get a DSTwo.

    There is an emulator for GBA on normal flash carts like the R4, but it doesn't play a lot of games and has graphical bugs in a lot more, the DSTwo's special emulators are currently better.

    Do not get that second cart, it's a shit clone by a shit team.

    If it's not listed there, do not buy it.

    I will be going with
    I will be going with the first, as good as the DSTwo looks, I need 2 cards and I cant afford 2 DSTwo's They look great but just cant afford them atm :\ Also happy 300 Internets! I was the 300th :P hehe
    @Rydian yea I was wondering why the clone wasn't there, I guess I know now... Though I think there should be a sticky with trustful sites.. Finding them is a pain... I literally went over 10 pages yesterday trying to find one that wasn't a scam.

    Edit: I'm thinking about going for 1 DSTwo and 1 R4i Gold, sucks that I cant get any discounts xD

    There's shoptemp.net, but people tend to not leave reviews.

    I hate how the stores that have the cheaper DSTwos are sold out on DSTwos :cry: Also when it comes to the R4i Gold, does it matter if it says R4i Gold RT or R4i Gold 3DS? S:

    Yeah the ones that sell for like $39 or whatever tend to get sold out because a lot of other stores still try to charge $45 or something.

    The "RTS" is just a new label since Wood added RTS stuff, as long as it's r4ids.cn then it's the same thing.
